The author adduces that there should be the obligation of questioning and answering during the teaching period, instead of passively acceptance by the students. This is the claim with which I generally do concur; among the countless reasons which give adherence to my viewpoint, I would list the most conspicuous ones to rear my standpoint.
The first striking reason which should be considered is the effect of participation in the teaching process over learning proficiency. Indeed, the action of questioning pursues the mind to follow the content of discussion more effectively; furthermore, the learning covers the big portion of discussed points during the teaching. On the other hand, in the passive way of participation in the class, the mind gets to the one-directional mood in which the possibility of the distraction from the main topic is so high. This fact is verified by the recently conducted study by Psychology Department of Tehran University. According to this refreshing intelligence research, the level of efficiency of mind, in data obtaining aspect, declines by approximate of forty percent when its interaction with the topic is passively and without the understanding the progression of its logic. Therefore, the method of querying the content of the lesson by the students causes to the high stand of interaction with the context of the course and enhances the ratio of learned issues.
Another equal striking reason is the explicit feedback of possible weakness in the topic which is obtained by the instructors. In fact, the questioned fields represent areas that students have difficulty for its understanding; according to these report and feedback, the teacher informs about the possible mistakes and failure which students will have in the future; consequently, the progression of the teaching will be aligned to the path which covers these issues. This acknowledges and matching between the method of teaching and the cognition level of students gets more weight and value when the continuousness of lessons’ contents is considered. In another word, since the lessons in any field possesses a process and its content in any level is relevant to the previously discussed topic, the understanding and prevention of the possible problem in its initial stage will be more beneficial in the future learning speed and efficiency.
Finally, this point also should be highlighted that this questioning is a challenge for instructors to present the topic comprehensively and at an advanced level. Although the number of teachers who teach the lessons in the superficial level is few, this querying prevents this number of teachers to present the shallow understanding from the topic. As students have interaction during the teaching processes, they can go steps further than the presented issue, and willing to know more than the privilege issue discussed in the book. In this scenario, instructors are forced to present and cover the topic from the various and entire aspects to fulfill these upper-level questions. Thus, the status of education in the school will be raised.
To wrap it up, all the aforementioned reasons explicitly depict the positive impact of the questioning during the teaching process by the students which increases the brain’s interaction with topic, give a lucid picture about the student possible mistakes and boost the taught contents.
